Contrast Security | April 13, 2022
Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure-as-they code, today announces its commitment to helping Java developers build code securely by joining the Foojay Advisory Board.
"Prior to the creation of Foojay, the ecosystem of OpenJDK users lacked a vendor-neutral community platform for many years. It is wonderful to see more and more individuals and organizations, such as Contrast Security, getting involved since the foundation's inception in April 2020. Contrast Security not only shares their insights about the OpenJDK, but also provides valuable security tips and tricks as well as helps collaborate around Foojay, the place for friends of OpenJDK." said Geertjan Wielenga, Senior Director of Open Source Projects at Azul, the initiator of Foojay.
Contrast Security along with the other Foojay Advisory Board Members will help guide the direction, content and oversight of Foojay.io, the community site for developers who use, target, and run their applications on top of Java and OpenJDK, with a focus on growing the community and meeting its mission to provide free information for everyday Java developers.
"We're honored to join the Foojay Advisory Board because we know Java developers rely on the Foojay community and the foundation's mission of sharing information and improving the entire market as a whole. Contrast is proud to help progress security within Java applications and assist developers to build securely without having to change the way they work."
Steve Wilson, Chief Product Officer at Contrast Security

ReliaQuest | February 18, 2022
ReliaQuest, the leader in Open XDR-as-a-Service, today announced the expansion of its GreyMatter platform with support for MITRE ATT&CK v10 and Risk Scenarios that visually maps and measures a security program’s detection coverage in terms of threats and cyber risks. This new feature enables security leaders to close the communications gap with business leaders while demonstrating how well their security program mitigates cyber risks of most concern to the enterprise.
Many leaders are challenged with measuring the progress of their security program and the impact of their security investments. According to a recent Ponemon Institute Research report, 64% of security leaders say a lack of standardized security metrics to measure progress is the primary obstacle to implementing an IT security risk management program. What’s more, 58% say that the lack of a well-defined security and risk management program is what makes their organization most vulnerable to cyberattacks.
With the ability to map coverage against Risk Scenarios, GreyMatter enables security leaders to have a real-time view into how they are performing against individual threats or cyber risks they are most concerned about. They can pinpoint any gaps in coverage and make informed decisions on how best to proceed with investments and actions to close these gaps. Breakdowns by cyber risk categories and subcategories within them help security leaders focus on areas of concern at a granular level.
“Too often, leaders rely on technical metrics that lack a holistic view of how security tools are operating together, leaving them at a loss when it comes to communicating cyber risks to the business, What’s more, translating the effectiveness of security tools in a language that leadership understands poses even more of a challenge. Now, with Risk Scenarios, security leaders have a more comprehensive view into how much coverage they have across cyber risk areas that concern them the most. This will help them make informed decisions on how best to approach these issues and communicate them effectively to leadership.”
Brian Foster, Chief Product Officer at ReliaQuest
Additionally, ReliaQuest announced an upgrade of its support for the latest MITRE ATT&CK framework version 10. By upgrading to support v10 of the framework, GreyMatter users are better able to visualize and measure detection coverage aligned to the latest techniques. In line with keeping with improving efficiencies for security operators, GreyMatter delivers enhancements to reduce tool hopping by automating collection of various contextual information, aiding in faster investigations and further streamlining the security operations workflow.
ReliaQuest, the leader in Open XDR-as-a-Service, is the force multiplier for security operations teams. ReliaQuest GreyMatter is a cloud-native Open XDR platform that brings together telemetry from any security and business solution, whether on-premises, or in one or multiple clouds, to unify detection, investigation, response and resilience. ReliaQuest combines the power of technology and 24/7/365 security expertise to give organizations the visibility and coverage they require to make cybersecurity programs more effective.
